RSS feed not loading in uTorrent

Post by whitehelm »

The past couple weeks or so RSS feeds haven't been loading (I only noticed now because I watch a couple eps at a time). Nothing has changed in my settings, the feed URLs in my client are still https://tracker.tvnihon.com/rss-download.php?cat=19 and https://tracker.tvnihon.com/rss-download.php?cat=17.

Edit: Specifically it looks like they stopped working around the 8th-9th, because Zero-One 30 downloaded but not Kiramager 5.

Sorry about that, we recently updated the tracker to work with https (before it was just http without the s). Try using the new url since the tech guy just took a look at it and a different fan said it was working for them.

Nope, making the URL https didn't work, but I found the problem. My client is set up to use a Socks5 proxy (for torrent privacy in general), and apparently https feeds can't be downloaded over a proxy. The only solution I found is to switch to a different client that only uses the proxy for the actual torrents, not the rss feeds.

I'm having the same issue using qBittorrent. The tracker is unreachable with my VPN's SOCKS5 proxy enabled, but it works fine when I disable it. qBittorrent even has a setting to only use the proxy for torrents, but it seems to ignore this setting. Which client ended up working for you?

That's what I'm using, so I'm not sure why it's not working for you. What URL are you using for the tracker?
